The idea of starting a boat repair business came as a natural progression stemming from 34 years of experience in the Collision Repair Industry. After retiring from a major automotive paint manufacturing company, I decided that this was an opportune time to do what I've always wanted to do. I've always had a boat repair project, since my early years growing up around the Great Lakes. I began working weekends on customer boats during my pre-retirement years. As the business grew into more than a weekend job, I decided to retire from PPG Industries and start the business as a mobile service, which is what I still do today during the winter months. From April through September I rent a building which serves as a home shop during those months.
As an National Instructor for PPG, I learned the value of education through manufacturer and supplier sponsored training, and personally took as many courses as were offered in the repair field of gel-coat, fiberglass & marine epoxy. I was also invited to attend a week long hands-on training with Ranger Boats in Flippin Arkansas in order to become an authorized warranty repair facility. These opportunities have provided me with a wealth of experience where I now specialize in Polyflake Repairs on all makes and models.
I also offer "Boat Repair Training", where I share the information and skills gained through my manufacturer and supplier contacts, through the years. Please go to my "TRAINING INFO" link, above. Take advantage of my training services and experience if you are interested in starting a Boat Repair Business. Also, feel free to sign in and make a comment in the "Guestbook" link above.
My mission statement is simply this, "To provide the best quality repair and customer service using manufacturer approved products and systems that return the boat to pre-accident condition". I guarantee all my repairs for as long as you own the boat!
